Latin American Business Conference
Major publications and opinion leaders around the world have stated that this decade will be remembered as the "Latin American Decade." Most countries in the region have embarked on promising paths of macroeconomic stability and growth. This has opened many great business opportunities as Latin American economies become more affluent and more integrated into the global economy. However, economic development has also generated new challenges for governments in terms of sustaining good economic performance and increasing their responsibility in global economic institutions. The LABA Conference provides key insights on the most important opportunities and challenges that lay ahead for Latin America. Visit the conference web site >
